This is one of many questions asked Ms. Edna for a response. There are several ways that you could initiate an open line of communication. The one Ms. Edna recommended is to write a letter to your offspring expressing a desire to mend the relationship, and responding to what issues she thought were challenging him. It is sad to have such a precious relationship broken. In the letter the mother reached out to her son to bridge the gap by explaining to him that he had nothing to do with his parents’ divorce. She restated her unconditional love and invited him to give her a conversation at his convenience. The relationship is now restored and the two are able to have meaningful conversations. The mother who asked this question wanted to know if her son were holding against her the divorcing of his father.
